'Born Positive' is a documentary about three young Londoners who were born with HIV. Due to the stigma they have to face, their stories were filmed with actors lip-syncing their real voices. They all share a secret that was hidden to them while they were children. And once they find it out, they felt they had to keep it to themselves and hide it from others. Blame, anger and ignorance are just some of the feelings that they deal with having got such an unpopular STD through their mums.
